The Philadelphia Orchestra -- Tchaikovsky Week 2--The Serenade
Philadelphia Orchestra Associate Conductor Cristian Macelaru is joined by Principal Cello Hai-Ye Ni for the great Rococo Variations, a showpiece for cello and orchestra. Tchaikovsky’s expressive Serenade for Strings features that glorious sound of the Philadelphia strings. The Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor by Borodin are both thunderous and sensuous, including a melody made famous by the popular Broadway song “Stranger in Paradise” from Kismet. Balakirev’s Islamey closes the program.
